The Chandrayaan-2 orbiter finished its first de-orbiting maneuver on September 3 while the Vikram Lander achieved an orbit of 104 km x 128 km. On September 2, the Vikram Lander successfully separated from the orbiter and will now be orbiting the moon on its own. Both the lander and orbiter were reported to be in a healthy state. The next de-orbiting maneuver is scheduled to take place on September 4 between 3:30 AM to 4:40 AM IST. After the Vikram Lander makes a soft-landing on the surface of the moon, the Pragyan rover will be deployed from the Lander using a ramp which will hold the alpha-proton X-ray spectrometer and a laser-induced ablation spectroscopy experiment.
